Talent Village was founded in 2017, after an existing business, Model Village evolved after organically identifying a new commercial opportunity.
Founded by William Soulier and Quentin Renard, Model Village was an exclusive membership club that partnered with the W Hotel, London. The Model Village was a place where models could network between castings, create content and discover brand experiences.
During its two year stint, the founders saw the models’ growing and engaged audiences and recognised that with the right matchmaking, creative collaboration and insights, the models could be converted into buyable media for brands.
Adrien Thierry came on board as co-founder and Talent Village was born. His involvement was instrumental in building a robust agency business and developing a proprietary tech platform.
The team has since grown to over 40 across 3 global offices in London (HQ), Paris and NYC.
In 2019, Talent Village joined the Dorfman Media Holdings network.
